sb Crazy Beasts throw pots on their first date.....

We get up to all sorts here!  This was slightly out of our comfort zone – but hey we are game.

However the good news is that you don’t have to go to those lengths to have a go on the wheel!  You can learn to throw your own pot on most Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons and some Sundays.  Be yourself -  bring your best mate and have some fun.  The £25 fee covers all materials and a second session to come and paint your creations.
